Senator Oscafr Valehzucln Valdes, chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee of Chile, has pioposcd thai his Cbltnti'y's most northerii city, Anca, be turned into a free port io serve Ihe invests of Peril, Bolivia, and Ecuador. ' - 'fhis is a conce'pliofi quite similar to that which at Versailles prevailed about Danzig. Danvig, piedominantly German in population and li Million, stood in a location where a free i j o- latit) hfld to have access Ibiough il to 'the &a. Therefore, paid the Veisailles ne'gotiatois, let us give it neither Lo German? nor to" Poland, but let us make It -a Free City tlnoilgh which both Germany 'aild Poland mny tiade, llnd let us name a League of Nations com- nlisidoiier to live theic ,'ind see that tlie rights of both coimtiies and Ihelr citizens are obs>eived. That was the theory, -and a perfect ly sensible, sane theoiy, loo. What hap.. pened was that neither Poland nor Germany whole-heaitedly accepted Die ( theory. Each tried to mciesise its '111- fiuence and power in r Danv.ig, \yhile the decay of the League marto it impossible i for tlie commissioner to halt 'the op-^ posing ambitions of the Iwo coimtiies, Now these animosities have (laied into such an ' incandescence that they may , well ignite all Europe. • Bui^all this does not .discouiage Sen ator Valenznela. He behoves that sanity mayo'et pievail in the world's affairs. So he pioposes that Arica be made a Free City,~ believing that the loss of custom:, duties to the countries involved would be moie than le- paid by the great increase in hade which he believes would follow the opennig of 'such an impicbsivo gateway to the three countries. Aiica wa& the scene of as bitter fighting as ever raged in Danxig. Oh the great Morro headland that frowns above the" sarldy beach, Pei uvians and Chileans out m ISTfl ui as bitter a battle as tlie Western world ever saw. The cont.oveisy ovei Aiica and its neighboring Penman city, Tacna, remained unsettled until l!)2o' Chile got Arjca But ilow, acliiated by belief that the only worth-while settlement i s one OUT OUR WAY which most benefits all parties, Senator ValclmieJa suggests that, Voluntarily and' without the sp'uf of war 1 or a war settlement, the contested City become a real intei'ilational gateway. How practicable the plan may be, and whether it stands a chance of adoption, is hard to judge aa this distance. But, il is significant that once again a proposal for 1 a sslne, peaceful, mutually-beneficial arrangement between tliree countries has been made in the western world, the only part of th globe which seems at the moment able to make them. Com Off the Cob Among several other things that make us glild we'ie an American living in llw United States is corn on the cob. A I'Yenclimaii may bo a line judge ot ' red wine and baked snails, but he gets DO coin on the cob. A Britisher may carve himself u fine joint of .beef, bill he gels no coin on the cob. A Gcthiaii may delight in a cutlet and red cabbage, but he gets no Coni on the cob. Think of all those Itussians, Uuman- jftiw, Tiuks, Laplanders and Patilgon- iaiis doing without corn on the cob— and at this season of the year, tool It's enough (() break your heart.
